Population Health and CME

Part I of the Population Health series introduced the concept of Population Health (PH) and how PH is being applied in healthcare. We’re interested in how Population Health can have an impact on the professional development of medical professionals.

Currently, the data needed for Population Health is most likely to be found in EHRs maintained by health providers and, increasingly, in clinical data registries (CDRs) maintained by professional societies and boards. Actual PH analytics may be accessible to physicians through the EHR, CDR, or other tools that might create useful views into that data.

We’d like to see these data sources connect more easily with online learning tools to provide more effective and efficient Performance Improvement programs for physicians. The goal for Population Health and CME is to create a new education and professional development strategy that facilitates better outcomes for patients and reimbursement based on performance, not the volume of patients or procedures.
